Itís easier to hedge with a partner. You bet $ and match play and your partner bets the hedge side. However, the casino employees are aware of these types of team hedges. .

Some couples keep separate accounts just for the mailers. They use the match play coupons as an opening gambit. Its a dinner a few drinks and some music at the very minimum. If the match play works out, they get to extend the night a bit more.

In many local casinos its not necessary to adopt any subterfuge: the dealers know what is going on and the couples don't even go to opposite ends of the table. The casinos know its a marketing gimmick and its worked: its drawn them into the casino. After that its the luck that all players face.

It becomes like putting a twenty into a slot machine: sometimes it lasts sometimes it evaporates. The free play is a loss leader and the crew doesn't much care.

Thought about just going for it too. Coming from a minimum pass line guy with the 6 and 8 placed as well I may have a heart attack lol

Oh, I know just what you mean.

My local Seminole rip off joint offered a fifty dollar match play coupon, so if it won at Baccarat it would be as if I had bet 100.00. Unfortunately there were so many hoops and delays in turning that coupon into a bet that by the time they got thru with the left thumbprint and all, that I was so pissed off I didn't mind too much when the bet lost.

Others brought in those coupons not quite understanding how to use them, and I explained to one guy about the delays and it gave him a face-saving out since he really had no intention of ever betting fifty dollars of his own money on one bet and I think everyone at the table knew it.

I didn't have anyone for shared coupons and with all those hoops and all that delay, I'm kind of glad I didn't subject anyone else to it.

The last time I used free play (at the GN on Freemont Street) I just went to the cage, showed my card, and got a few funky chips that could only be used in their casino. No fuss, no muss.

Hey guys,

I was wondering if you guys hedge your match play to guarantee a win or just roll with it? Im given a 100 match which can be broken up to 25x4, 50x2, or all at once.

What would you guys do?

Thanks!



Go to any craps table and bet, $100+matchplay on pass line, $150 on the don't pass line, and $5 on the twelve crap.
